For Cancer Survivors
What is survivorship?
From the moment of your cancer diagnosis, you are a cancer survivor. At the Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion, we support cancer survivors in a variety of ways including physically and emotionally. We focus on the health and well-being of cancer patients beyond diagnosis and treatment with everything from virtual support groups to cancer transition classes to general education on exercise, nutrition and other things to help you through you cancer treatment and beyond.
We hope you find the resources on this web page informative. If you have any questions about survivorship, please call us at 912-819-5167.
COMING SOON: Our survivorship program, Cancer Transitions is going virtual! We will offer the class via Zoom to a limited number of participants. You can expect the same great information - wellness, exercise, emotions, nutrition, medical care and survivorship. To register or for more information, please call 819-5167.
